You're not the Only One

The two sisters sat in quiet contemplation, legs stretched out in front of them on the bed. The clock on the wall ticked quietly. Cassielle thought she had rarely seen her sister so quiet. She had expected her to throw things, scream curse the world and everything in it. She thought that might be incredibly preferable to this uncomfortable sad silence and the deadened look in Nebellea’s eyes.

She squeezed her sister’s hand. “You okay Bella,”

“Hmmm what? Oh yes absolutely no completely fine,”

“Bella…”

“Alright no I’m not but really I kind of expected this, he was bound to have fallen for someone or other by now. It’s not like he I mean the logical part of me has always said it was not going to work out. He’s an important scion of House Lekel while I come from a minor family that at best is a largish fish and a very small pond. I mean why do I still care about him when I know he is all about House and fortune rather than anything else. Everything would be House Lekel this and House Lekel that, yes father shall I kill another skaa father? He attacks our ships at sea and still I try to think of justification for his actions. And for the Lord Ruler’s sake he’s half again my age! How did I ever think this would end like a fairy tale from back when we were young?”

“Nothing is Forever,” Cassielle quoted remembering.

“Oh do not quote the House motto to me at a time like this Cas!”

“I always found them quite profound, we move forward and adapt. The good things will not always be with us forever so cherish them while they are. And so neither will the bad times, look to their end and move forwards. Yeah sure it is not going to work out with Hyrum and it never will but you have other good things in your life to hold onto. You’ve been hurt before and you have always gotten back up.”

A long silence stretched between the two and Cassielle could see a little of the fire back in Nebellea’s eyes.

“When the blazes did you get to be so profound,”

“Just comes with being your amazing younger sister, no need to applaud.”

Heart to Heart

“You seem in an awfully good mood,”

Nebellea turned to look back at her sister lounging on one of rooms comfortable divans.

“I’m sorry?”

“I forgive you. You were humming, like you were happy,” Casielle flicked to the next page of her book.

Nebellea scowled “I did not realise that feeling optimistic was against the law,”

“Nah it’s just weird that’s all, It’s kind of freaking me out. You normally just blush or throw tantrums,”

“I do not!”

“Oh sure, I’ll just blame the slamming doors on Pellik,” Casielle hid her smile behind her book. Nebellea turned stiffly back to the mirror and concentrated on fixing another hair pin in place.

“I wonder why are you feeling so upbeat today?” Casielle continued in mock confusion stroking an imaginary beard.

“I am not listening to your silliness little sister.”

“Maybe you got a pony? No that can’t be right. Oh! I know you’re happy because you got a pat on the head from Owandise!” Casielle did not need tin to hear Bella’s teeth grinding at the jibes. “Oh wait I know.” Casielle paused for effect “Your getting to see Hyrum tonight! That’s why you aren’t as grumpy as usual!”

“Oh would you stop it!” Nebellea snarled spinning round again.

“You looooooovvvvve him, Nebby!” Cassielle cackled, laying aside her book “Who’d have thought one eyed, thirty somethings were your thing!”

“I do not! It’s not-”

“Oh Hyrum,” Casielle simpered mimicking her sister’s voice “your eye patch is sooo cute aahhhh!” Casielle yelped as launched a pillow at her.

“Stop being insufferable! And no I WAS happy because I was reminded I had people who like me! Care about me!”

“Awwwww how sweet did Hyrum get you flowers?”

“NO!” Bella took a moment to compose herself “Actually it was Quillan who reminded me and no before you ask he did not buy me flowers! He hugged me and reminded me that people cared. Akhara had been pacing around all night wiring for me. There happy now!”

“Oh.”

“What no smart response?”

“I’m sure I’ll come up with something in a second,”

Nebellea turned to look at her sister slightly surprised. She was sat grumpily picking up her book again

“Why do you look like a sour puss all of a sudden?”

“No reason, would you stop distracting me from my book now”

“Me distracting you!”

“Yes stop it.” A long silence descended.

“You’re jealous!” You could hear the grin in Nebellea’s voice as she made the connection.

“I am not!”

“You absolutely are! You’re jealous of Quinn hugging me! Is that why you have suddenly take such an interest in playing that Skaa game?”

“No! It’s not like that! I uh.”

“Impressive that must the first time I have ever seen you at a loss for words.”

“Shut up, I don’t want to…”Cassiel stopped speaking as Nebellea suddenly hugged her, pressing her sister against her as words began tumbling out.

“Look I know that things are a little, strained at the moment and you can be a real brat sometimes but don’t be afraid Cas. I’m here for you and I just want to see you happy. If you have taken a fancy to Quillan that’s… that’s fine. We seem to have so little time to just enjoy the moment and be ourselves now. Too much worrying about what will or will not happen. So if you are finding joy in spending time with Quillan just… just enjoy it,”

Cassielle nodded her head silently and the two broke apart from their hug. They stood their awkwardly for a few seconds neither sure of what to say.

“I’lll – I’ll see you at dinner Cas,”

“Just learn to practice what you preach okay Bella?” Cassielle says quietly as her sister walked away.

Chapter 38 Summary
The Session we did a lot of Dancing
  • Go dancing
  • Adassey seems distracted/tired
  • Other girls are uninteresting in general
  • We have lunch where Hyrum and Ronan turn up late.
  • Ronan stares at Nebellea like a Predatory animal might eye up prey
  • We try to find out something about the house through leading questions
  • Manage to see first two floors (ground and first)
  • Bella causes a scene so Alhara can sneak off
  • Alhara finds out about a secret room in the library
  • We faff some more at dancing, major outcomes are:
  • Krea and Adassey are to be coming for dinner with Hyrum and Wrayn
  • Fallow has made an impression on krea (swooning and connected now…) such that he hopes to be employed as a dance teacher in other noble establishments
  • At home there is a skaa (later called Zayn) who has no memories, appears to be from Austrex City Dock Workforce
  • He is not able to burn gold (thanks Bella)
  • Has a package contained Alhara’s old Copperminds
  • They still possess her investiture but not the actual memories
  • She is understandably freaked out
  • Message on note: “Thank you, these were delicious”
  • Otherwise seem like normal metal minds (confirmed by Alhara) and regular copper purity (confirmed by Bella)
  • Quinn writes a letter to Teven (to be sent to Richard via slack)
  • We get some Skaa which Fallow makes introductions to (like Oskar Schindler)
  • Quinn learns some basic science with Alhara
  • Bella makes some thought based progress on her reconnecting with Cassie after the beating

Plan moving forward:

  • Bella and Alhara to poke around Noble Homes to find out who the strange noble lady may have been
  • Quinn to look into finding Slips (or Broon) in order to find tressex, and to look into finding information about Zayn from Dock Workers
  • Fallow to work with Alhara in indoctrinating our new Skaa
  • Fallow to continue his rehabilitation of Molsier
